Garden Connect helps you to sell more plants
Garden centres and nurseries (both retail and wholesale) are always searching for the best way to sell plants. Garden Connect is exhibiting at the GLAS Tradeshow on 18 July to help wholesale nurseries and garden retailers to sell more plants.
“We have been helping garden centres and wholesale nurseries to sell more plants since 2002. As an online marketing agency, we understand our customers don’t want fancy websites, they just want to reach their goal. And that’s basically just focused on selling more plants,” explains Edwin Meijer, MD of the Amsterdam-based company.
Garden Connect is providing services to several wholesale nurseries. Their webshops and scan apps are integrated with well-known nursery management software systems like Passfield, Growmaster and TopSys to make sure stock levels and prices are up to date.
“Most people in the industry are aware we’re providing services to over 300 garden centres. However, we’ve developed many solutions for strict trade-only nurseries as well. Rochfords are using our webshop and ordering app, for example. We also recently renewed the webshop for Provender Nurseries and the new webshop for Lowaters Nurseries has been launched a few weeks ago. All of them are integrated with the different nursery management software the nurseries use.”
“Whilst we are making good progress on the nursery side of the industry, we are pleased to announce we have signed up many new garden centres as well. Some are using our webshop to showcase and sell plants, like Cowell’s Garden Centre. Others are using our extensive plant database to build a plant finder or generate POS signage. This spring we’ve launched the new website for the Frosts Group which is completely integrated with their EPoS.”
“Being an online marketing agency with an understanding of plants allows us to help garden centres and nurseries be more successful. We know how to optimise plant-pages to rank well on Google and have many examples which show how we help to generate footfall into stores.”
